Hunter needs protection


Amaranth Advisors trader Brian Hunter has reportedly hired bodyguards to fend off aggrieved investors and former colleagues.

The Times of London reported that Hunter, who worked out of his home town of Calgary, Ontario, recently purchased his own private security detail after several unsuccessful attacks by former coworkers, 420 of which lost their jobs when Amaranth imploded due to Hunter's natural gas trades.
